Fresno Music School Survives Thru Pandemic, To Hold Grand Re-Opening Ceremony
(FRESNO, CALIF.) —
The United Conservatory of Music started in a small dentists office in 2018 with only 50 students and grew to nearly 10 times that size in two years.
Then the lockdowns began.
The school lost a third of its business as it dropped to a low of 300 students at the height of the pandemic. But, thanks to innovations the school implemented during the pandemic, including outdoor concerts, virtual music lessons, and heightened health and safety precautions, enrollment has expanded to 700 students and counting.
United Conservatory of Music will host a grand re-opening ceremony and ribbon cutting at their new location at 6759 North First Street in Fresno to celebrate their growth and return to in-person classes. The grand re-opening ceremony and open house is open to the public.
The grand reopening and open house is scheduled to take place on August 10th, 2021, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The school has planned a full day of food, ice cream, an instrument petting zoo, silent auction, live music, an art booth, games, free music lessons, and instrument raffle giveaways.
Director Christopher Scherer said, “We are so thrilled to have all of our students back in person. Zoom lessons were vital to kids in order to keep the normalcy of life going during the pandemic, and it will continue to be a part of what we do, but nothing replaces in-person lessons where students can learn directly from the teacher, face-to-face.”
2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the music school after United Conservatory of Music was voted Central California Parent Magazine’s Reader Choice for 2021: The Best Place for Children’s Music Lessons.
